If you love a good soft, artisanal pastel hand spun yarn, this skein is for you.
This yarn was spun by me from hand dyed wool top, using a woollen technique, making it a semi-woollen yarn. This means the skein retains the strength of a longer staple fibre but it’s warmer due to the air trapped by the spinning style used – the best of both spinning worlds!
It is mostly a Worsted/Aran weight and has a chain-plied construction, so it’s rounded like a 3-ply yarn but keeps the colour structure. Speaking of colours, I just love the soft pastel pinks, blues and greens, I think the combo makes this hand spun suitable for a year-round garment.
The pastel hand spun yarn has a subtle sheen from the bamboo and softness from the merino. The tweed bits add a lovely texture overall.
There is a total of 284 yards/259 meters approximately for you to knit, crochet or weave something lovely with.
About handspun yarn
Hand spun yarns are full of character. They have variable textures throughout the thread because they are 100% made by human hands and, therefore, their weight (“thickness”) can vary a little or a lot, depending on the spinner’s intention.
When crafting with handspun, you are picking up the spinner’s work, continuing the fibre’s journey, and making it your own.
Be a part of this amazing handmade artistry.
